The ballet from which this mnsic is taken was performed by the Russian Dancer?, at the Theatre du Chuto'.et, in Paris. June, 191.. M. Nijinski impersonated Daphnis and Mile. Karsavma Chloe. M. Arthur Rougin summarizes the action of the piece thu?: "In the first ?cene we are in the presence of a smiling landscape, a green meadow, at the edge of a sacred wood, where the two lover? meet Daphnis loves Chloe, Chloe loves Daphnis; they say this and repeat it in a language full of expression, which leaves ua m Uoubt a. to the euicenty <$of their sentiments. Hut while they | are talking thus tenderly a storm ; breaks forth, the ?ky I? clouded, the ?^thunder growls and ? band of pirates jcom?s upon them, who, finding Chloe to their taste, snatch her from the ! arm? of her lover and carry her off without much ado. "The second scene taken us to the : banks of the JEgrem Sea, In the midst of the den of pirates, whom Chloe begi I in vain to restore her to liberty. ? Finally, thanks to the intervention, all I powerful and efficient, of the god Pan, | who is not al way.? as bad as he is 1 painted, the gentle Chine is delivered j and restored to Dalphnis, who recelvoa with the joy that one can easily imagine."

BELGIAN TRAGEDY MADE KING A HERO A British View of the "Citizen Ruler" and of His Torn and Ruined Land. When the nightmare has passed and men look back with seat at i the days when et bell there la Bril lafa exchange, I that will stand out eonepicaoua even atiiid the universal horror. It is the i ruin of Belgium. There is no parallel in history to the fate that has befallen that unhappy country There is no riiiiie in history comparable with that crime Peace will eome again, punish? ment will be exacted and the oblivion1 of time will heal many wounds, but neither peace nor time nor penalty will wipe ou? the stain of Belgium from the soul of Germany. That is indelible; that can never be forgotten and never ' be forgiven. It condemns Germany to i eternal obloquy and places Cue Kaiser among the great criminals of the hu? man race. There is, however, only one figure who has touched the imagination of the world by the qualities of humanity and heroism. The King of the Belgians i..?, won the hearts of men as few kings or subii rts ever win it, and whatever the result of the war he will be the symbol of Its human and ehivalrie as just as the Kaiser will l?e the i of its barbar ties and ambl ! tions. If Europe effect.? Itl 'U lucrante from the peril that overahadowi us it 'will owe the fact primarily t?. the Uti ' parallel* d sacrifice of Belgian and the heroic inspiration of Belgium's King. None of thoae who have reaerves about ' kingship need have any hesitation in | th<ir confession, for King Al I bert i- i K:n>.' after our own heart^ ? the civil h. , ?pie. Not long a;-?, tl.e name of the King of the Belgians was a name of evil Ini? port. Leopold II, in his vices, ambi ? tions and magnificence, played the role of the Grand Monarque on a tiny Etage He belonged to the traditions of Francois I, Henry VIII and Louis XIV, and had he been cait for a bigger part in sovereignty his master? ful, aggreaalve and conscienceless i?i have plunged Europe in trouble. Ilia passion for splendor was largely at the root of the infamy of his rule in the tongo. Men were tor? tured in the rubber forests of the , Congo that he might ape magnificence | and build great palaces of empire at I home, and his contempt for the poor I was as flagrant as his domestic tyr ; anny and his private scandals. At ] his death M Vandervrldt pronounced on him one of the most terrible ver? dict ever passed upon a king. "We ; have tried," he said, "to find ir, this ; long reign of forty-four yean one act i of goodness, of mercy, of charity. Alas! we ran find nothing." There was never a more striking ? change in personality than that ! achieved when his nephew, Albert, the i ion of the Count of Flanders, came to ! the throne. Like his ur.cl*. King Al? bert is a man of great ?tature and a ' masterful will, but there the likenesa ! ends So far from playing the grand j monarch, he is the best type of the i citizen king that Europe ha* yet pro I duced M. Wa_wei!er, the economist I of the Solway Institute at Brussels, I who was King Albert's tutor and who ?7-. ?till privileged with his clos friendship, gave me long ago a plear ant picture of the plain and homel life, und the even social intei' this remarkable man. I'omp and cu cumstunee are entirely alien to hi democratic spirit. He : the flummeries of courts to their low est expression, and moves among hi people with an easy, unpretentiou inendline -, qualified by a modest that amount? almOBl to bashfulnes?. When he and his Queen come to En| land, for which he ha? a deep at?ectio7 they come as plain citizens, put up a u hotel, visit the theatre, go BOOB ping, and vanish without the WOrli neing any the wiser. His uncle's pa? sion was the greatness of hi-, eignty; King Albert's p .ssion is th. happiness of his people and the goo. name of his country. To these hi whole life ha? been devoted witl extraordinary etnglttacBI <>f aim. H? went ip the Congo to see the trutl about the Leopold ternie lor himself and his accession was coincident witl the wiping out of that blot from th, record of his country. He know-, th? greatness of a country is expressed no in palaces hut in the lives of its people and as Crown Prince he sot himself t< kan. what '.ho," live aere like. H? worked m the mines, he drove engine: on the railways, he mixed with th? Work ? in all their activities And the constant theme in his speech?-: in the Senate and cleewherc WS wellbeing of the working populatior el the country. But if the condition of the poor wai to be raised, something else was neces ary beeide? sympathy and knowledge Th?t something was the prosperity ol industry and commerce. Now, there war one defect in the equipment of hif country which as a bound economist chiefly disturbed him. Belgium had a great overseas trade and was the sec? ond port in Europe, but its merchan? dise eras carried in foreign bottoms, chiefly British und German. He saw that this was not merely a source of commercial weakness, but also of po? litical menace That menace came from Germany. Subtly, stealthily, that coun? try was aoiuirmg a pr?dominant in? fluence in tne life of Antwerp. Ger? mans were capturing the Chamber of Commerce, the marine insurance busi r.es?, the control of the banks, the pos? session of the navigation compar.i the freighting trade, ot shrphroking, of everything. Antwerp was becoming a city in which the people were Belgians, bu* 'he mast-era were Oermuns. To change all this the Crown Prince set himself to emulate the example of Peter the Oreat, though with a nobler purpose. The establishment of a mer? cantile marine for his country became the dominant purpose of his life, and to accomplish it he assumed the die guise of a newspaper reporter and vis? ited the principal ports and shipyards of Europe to carry out his investiga? tion?. It wa? thus that he went to Bel? 's-.' ?n l!>m<. And since his accession he has pursued his purpose with less privacy for he can no longer pass himself off a? a reporter bat not les?. enthusiasm, a? the visit to the United States showed It is not wi-e, perhaps, at this to probe too closely the ?e. ?. last tragic days at Antwerp, hut when those secrets are revealed the apirit of this man will shine out with a radiance that will glow ,n the page? of history for ever and ever. He and his people have won an immortality that, will be a precious inheritance and an enduring inspiration for humanity They have given u? a new faith tn our kind. They have shown us that in the mv.t peace-1 ful and bourgeois people the passion o patriotism can still flame into gres deeds, that the soul of man is m than all the engines of Kiupps, the in the final ordeal there li found in Hi the deathless spark that defiei iVath As we think of I -ed and tor tured people, eruahed at home undei the harrow .of the invader, wanderini . in hosts over the plains of Holland Starving nearly a hundred thousand o then: aa shore ?t Flushing we do not know whether the deepes feeling that surges in us is pity foi their sorrow or pride in their glory 1!.' thl we know that the sorrow w.l but that the glory n fadeless. Among the ma ilal one ol the Ka:.-er there was nono more fatal than Ins contempt for thi? simple, un? 'i King and his litt!? people. He thought that, willing 01 une, illing, he could take them in h il stride. Eventa bave revealed that be h;:.d this life of unpretentious indus? try, dornest:** affection and social en thuaiaam then- wu? ?? man cent in he roi'i mould a man prepared to see hi? country laid waste and to die in the last intrenchment with his peopl? lather than surrender the priceless jewel of the freedom of his country. It is said that he fired the last shot in the defence of Antwerp. It muy h.' i true. I do not think it is, for the act dee? not .. ?i the wholly un theatrical spirit of the man. He would not tire the last shot for show, but he would assuredly die the last death for honor. And whatever the cause of the war, whatever the fate of Kurope, it il In him that the future will see the ?Ml human, the most knightly figure of this titanic struggle. King and people alike have drunk the cup of bitterness for u< How easy it would have been for them to have craven terms with the Bully, to have bartered th'-ir honor and their liberty for their lives and their posies Belgium has died for freedom, for the freedom of the world. Let ua ?ee that she rises again triumphant from her tears and ashe,?. And ?f righteousness endures beneath the sun she will rise.

Endeavors have be?n made repeat? edly, but hitherto without any very ? -v r< alta, to design a source of artificial light, enabling shooters to Indulge In their sport even by night. Practically every sports? man has on his shooting grounds some game or vermin which he la unable to get hold of by day, as it is too sly i to leave the woods so long as there . danger of its being shot. At? tempts to prov. ? ihligbt ar? rangement for hunting purposes have. : .re, been watched by sportsmen with unusual In te real Apart from being easy to handle and safe In oper luch an outfit must be of suf intensity to insure really sportsmanlike shooting. A firm of German i onstructors, af? ter comprehensive and costly experi? ments, has IBCOQOdod In de-igxing p really convenient shooting searchlight? This Is readily mounte.l on any rifle and allows the back and front stghta or ,l ?? sighting telescope to be u?e?l in shooting, as the case may be. The right projects a bright cone of light on 'he gr..un.|, up to a diatance of 70 metre?, or IM feet, and enables one to take aim at 'he game in safety while it is blinded by the light In usiner the new searchlight, as soon as the approach of th.- gam? la heard or faintly seen the rifle is cau? tiously pointed In the proper direc . and the searchlight switched on. Should the game not be the 01 pected the source of light n immedi? ately ?switched out again, lest other game be frightened. In fact, the appa? ratus will only prove fully useful in the hands of skilled sportsmen; when Ml ?
